Friday Five

1. I’M WATCHING: Whenever I look at my training schedule and see intervals.

2. I’M READING: Runner’s World. Every time I pick up this magazine or go online I learn something new. Pro, “hobby jogger,” or plain running enthusiast, there is something for everybody. Great article on “high-intensity interval training” (HIIT, or some variation on that general theme), Sprinting for Weight Loss. For me, HIIT was the only way I got my race pace significantly lower.

3. I’M PINNING: Celebrating the start of the Olympics with Enjoy the Process: “The things you learn from sports—setting goals, being part of a team, confidence—that’s invaluable. It’s not about trophies and ribbons. It’s about being on time for practice, accepting challenges and being fearful of the elements.”

4. I’M LISTENING TO: Florence + the MachineSpectrum (Say My Name). Does she have a set of pipes!

5. I’M NOSHING ON: Cucumbers! How unexciting, right? But they are the perfect afternoon snack. Hummus, or balsamic vinegar, or tomatoes, etc. all make this green guy a big hit with me.

Give me a Friday 6, what’s something your diggin this week?

  1. I’ve been eating Shepherd’s Pie every day for lunch this week. Every day. You know I love my Shepherd’s Pie, but I’m more than a little ready to eat something different! :) Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. LOVE your pin, and you know I love Florence!
    I’m sure you’ll do great with the intervals, and if you don’t feel up to them you have a great excuse!
    I’m digging a four day work week on my first week back from holidays.

  3. Florence is surely a young superstar – couldn’t believe when I heard she was only 25 (maybe 26 now?)! Girl can belt it out!

    We got a huge cucumber in our CSA this week – I don’t think they’re “unexciting” at all ;)

    6. LE TOUR! Watching the TT right now!

    • She looks so much older, but yea she’s super young.

      Huge cucumber, eh?? Size doesn’t matter, it’s the crunch:) haha

      I am sure you’re sad to see the Tour over, but we have the olympics!
